Thailand helped Pol Pot, leader of the Khmer Rouge, to flee a recent Cambodian government offensive on Khmer headquarters at Pailin in north-west Cambodia, the Co-premier, Norodom Ranariddh said, AFP reports from Phnom Penh.

'Thailand will not be happy with us but we have pictures to prove (it),' he said. 'I can show you a picture of Pol Pot, his house being attacked, and Pol Pot escaping with cars and a convoy of trucks driving on a tarmac road inside Thai territory.'
